Gurkha Paratroops preparing for Rangoon drop

Gurkha Paratroops preparing for Rangoon drop
Here we see a group of Gurkha paratroops checking their parachute harnesses before the airborne part of the liberation of Rangoon on 1-2 May 1945. The paratroops were landed at key points around the city before the amphibious landings took place, but the Japanese had already evacuated the city.
